Second Chance Act Prisoner Reentry Initiative

The Second Chance Act of 2007 (Pub.

L.

110-199) provides a comprehensive response to the increasing number of people who are released from prison and jail and returning to communities.

There are currently over 2. 3 million individuals serving time in our federal and state prisons,

and millions of people cycling through local jails every year.

Ninety-five percent of all prisoners incarcerated today will eventually be released and will return to communities.

The Second Chance Act will help ensure the transition individuals make from prison or jail to the community is safe and successful.

Section 101 of the Act authorizes grants to state and local governments and federally recognized Indian tribes that may be used for demonstration projects to promote the safe and successful reintegration into the community of individuals who have been incarcerated.
